[Info] Cross Breeders

The purpose of this topic is for cross breeders to have a place to discuss their crossbreeding programs and to share crossbreeding secrets and advice with others who may be interested in giving crossbreeding a try. Feel free to talk about your crossbreeding programs and your achievements and failures in crossbreeding. There are many other aspects to crossbreeding, and we wish to include all if possible
Please remember to follow the rules of the forum and be informative and helpful default smiley :)

Here are a few points for beginners:
♦ If both parents are purebred, then the foal will present as the fathers’ breed
♦ If one or both are not purebred, then the foal will take on whatever is the dominant breed
♦ We cannot convert crossbreeds back to purebred. The most they will ever be is 99%
♦ When blupping, you need to take into account the top 3GP skills of the *individual* horse, not necessarily the breed it presents as
♦ The most important thing when it comes to crossbreeding? - to have fun default smiley ;)

Please bear in mind this is not the place to advertise coverings, nor is it for selling horses.

Thanks

This is my first time taking crossbreeding a bit more seriously and i have chosen to aim for Mustang crosses, I'm pretty happy with my first couple of attempts. Just wondering if someone would be able to give me advice on training and blupping one of my crossbred horses.

I was thinking of training this mare (Wild Love, Mustang x Arabian) in the same way i had with another of my Mustang crosses (Mustang x Appaloosa). Wild Love's top three skills in order are speed, stamina then gallop.

Starting with training in forest rides and starting her training in stamina and gallop until she is competitive enough to get her 20wins. Selecting western as discipline for comps. Once she has her 20wins completing the rest of her rides and training the rest of her skills.

Am i on the right track for her training if i follow how i trained and blupped the Mustang x Appaloosa or is her being Mustang x Arabian going to change the way i should be training her.

Here is a link to Wild Love. https://au.howrse.com/elevage/fiche/?id=2532134


Well heres what i would do if i owned her
i would prob use her as a gp horse as good stats and all so going to use my training for those for this

i would do Forest rides with her until 2 and add missions on to that train until completed then enter her in races that use her top skills which will be low so u get into lower classes and its easier to win sometimes continue missions as well.
After twenty wins and hopefully all skills gain from comps i would start with mountain rides if i havent l ready started those when forest ones were finished.
Train mountain rides until done and start on all the other skills but contiuning to do missions as well for best amount of skills in the top two
hope this kind of helped u

I am trying to breed a purebred paint with 3000+ genetics but I do not want to crossbreed all the horses available for stud are under 2000 gp
What do I do?

You could try contacting a Paint Horse team and see if you can buy a covering from Horse (most teams dont offer coverings from their top stock however so just be mindful of that), or even inquire into being part of a Paint Horse team if your looking to breed Paints. Additionally you can wait until Paint Horses begin selling in Sales at a high genetic level.

Hi all,

Was hoping to speak to anyone who has attempted to breed all the light horse and pony breeds together on this server...

I cross breed high GP Purebred Spanish Horses with Mustang horses to get across the board competition domination. If you get the dressage perk from the PSH mare, so that the primary skills are Dressage, Stamina, and Speed, they clean up in almost all competitions- excluding Barrel Racing and Gallop, where purebred Mustangs take over.

The most important factor to maintaining any talented competition horse is always ensuring it's bred with 100 BLUP because Inborn Skills are incredibly important default smiley (y)

Hey guys, just a quick question!

I will be birthing a foal who will be at 99% Shetland breed, and I would like to cover that foal with a purebred Shetland. Will I get a purebred foal out of the 2, or will the foal also remain 99% Shetland? default smiley ^)

The foal will be at 99% shetland, you cant breed a horse back to purebred if it has a crossbreed ancestor

Hey guys,

why do some breeders only bold 3 of their horses skills? Does this make them better for breeding or winning competitions? I'm very curious default smiley ^)

We only bold the top three skills sometimes because that uses the least amount of AP's and time possible when bluping a horse. it has no effect whatsoever. Just easier and less time consuming when you do lots of blups and need to spend less AP's default smiley (y)

I just crossbreeded a two crossbreed horses, but not all of the breeds are in the foal.
Stallion: whiskey
breeds: selle français, hanoverain, abrabian horse, KWPN
Mare: mellow
Breeds: australian pony, thoroughbred, hanoverian

So the foal should have 6 breeds: selle français, hanoverain, arabian horse, KWPN, australian pony, thoroughbred.
But i the list of the foal, KWPN is missing. Is this normal or a mistake or something like that?

Only 5 breeds will appear in your horses' lineage. This is normal
